Remember you sounds really heavily influenced by COVID time...
Yes, it is, she even mentioned protective barriers (an expression related to isolation, acrylic shields or even face masks) and I think "Conversing with others has become tiresome" is related to the fatigue we felt due to online conversations through Zoom and instant messengers.

Thanks for the translations!

I also just did my own of Remember you and kept it very close the the original Japanese. I hope you will enjoy it. =)

A vaccine effective against betrayal
Where could I possibly go to get one?
If such a thing existed
People could live without getting hurt, I wonder

あいつは一体何に感染して
人生を捨ててしまったの

What the hell infected him
He threw away his life

時代はこんなに巡り巡って
慣れた環境や友達も変わって

The times come and go so quickly
Familiar surroundings and friends are also changed

毎日通ったあの店もなくなり
思い出が宙で迷子になっている

The shop I used to go to everyday also disappeared
My memories are lost in the air

適度な距離のアクリル板は
何から守ってくれるんだろう
人間が持つ繊細なニュアンス
打ち消されるのは気のせいかな

Acrylic screens at proper distance
What do they possibly protect us from?
The fine nuances people possess
Are drowned out, or is it my imagination?
会話は余計面倒になって
ひとりが楽になるばかり

Conversations become an additional burden
And it just feels better to be alone

I've always loved her lyrics, it's really great to see how mature her songwriting is on this album.

I think this is her most mature album so far. And age is not a guarantee of maturity in terms of artistry, so I'm glad to see her evolving as an artist even after doing so many things through her career.

"Remember you" isn't an album of novelty, but it's Ayumi doing great with her known formulas while adding some freshness with new composers (and refining her habilities as lyricist). I like it a lot.

It's indeed nice to see her writing more about her inner issues and more accessible themes rather than "girl meets boy" kinda thing. I also agree that the album is pretty mature as everyone is talking, and musically solid.

Although I don't know if I'd pick Remember you instead of MADE IN JAPAN, I love that album as well...

added few translation from PVs on youtube

23rd Monster
Quote:
Try like calm peaceful waves
I am not sure I dreamt of this
There is nowhere to go
Donít think too much just go with the flow

It's insane not to think about it
It's called A 'Monster'

Letís redefine what normal is
The time for pessimism has passed

Are you going to stop me?
Getting ready to attack?
Do you see the end coming?

It feels like we are running out of options
But somehow, itís like they are now unlimited

You strangers
Your judgment is meaningless
In the end, itís up to me

Fly an exhausted worn out heart
But it is not like I've lost it all yet
I can clearly feel how from the depths
of your eyes, you're telling me to go to hell

Go ahead and die with honor
You're also A 'Monster'

In these uneasy times
Indeed things have become black and white

Would you make it?
What are you leaving behind?
Present is the futureís past

There is no strength in cleverness
Letting go is never easy

My beloved
Do not blame others
In the end, itís up to me

Letís redefine what normal is
The time for pessimism has passed

Are you going to stop me?
Getting ready to attack?
Do you see the end coming?

It feels like we are running out of options
But somehow, itís like they are now unlimited

You strangers
Your judgment is meaningless

In these uneasy times
Indeed things have become black and white

Would you make it?
What are you leaving behind?
Present is the futureís past

There is no strength in cleverness
Letting go is never easy

My beloved
Do not blame others
In the end, itís up to me

-In the end, itís up to me-

Quote:
Zzz... That worrisome face
Reflecting in the mirror is you
Lately, everything has been so crazy
This is why all your lies have been exposed

You have paid the price
with everything you had
Are you serious?
Are you kidding me?

Is success the goal in life?
What is this so-called success?
Is it a sin to think outside the box?
Does this course make you feel safe?

So oh it was a bit lonely to be alone
but my freedom was infinite
I realized that being restricted
Would bring nothing but despair

Honesty doesn't pay
People often say
If you're gonna accept that without question...
You're full of shit

Do you envy others' happiness?
You can see it all, right?
Aren't you judging the book by its cover?
Are you even sure this is real?

You say 「No!」「No!」
what you don't believe
Life is hard for everybody
I say 「Yes!」「Yes!」
what I do believe
We gotta be careful what's fiction

What you do believe

You say 「No!」「No!」
what you don't believe
It's beautiful because it's not perfect
I say 「Yes!」「Yes!」
what I do believe
We gotta be careful what's fiction
